Your gift to the First Star ASU Academy improves educational outcomes for Arizona’s foster youth.

Fewer than 3 percent of foster youth earn a college degree. You can help combat this statistic with a gift to the First Star ASU Academy Fund. Your generosity helps Arizona’s foster youth receive academic support and enrichment resources throughout high school that prepare them for a successful transition to higher education.

The academy provides intensive programming to ensure students have the necessary skills to complete high school and enroll in and, ultimately, graduate from college. Students are engaged in a variety of learning opportunities and can earn college credit for academic course work, independent study and a four-week residential summer experience. They are also encouraged to participate in cultural and social activities, including field trips, recreational events, caregiver workshops and service learning.
